viral-service-icon-v3.png Viral Service: AAV


Addgene's viral service provides high-quality and high-titer viral preparations. Addgene's AAV are made from plasmids that are currently in our repository. You can obtain the plasmid from us or receive a ready-to-use viral preparation from the inventory below.

AAV are distributed as 100 µL solutions of purified viral particles that are suitable for in vivo use. Minimum titers are listed on each item's material page. Actual titers are reported with each shipment.
